Welcome to Equinox

Welcome to the website of Equinox Publishing, the independent academic publisher based in Sheffield (UK). We publish books and journals for an international audience in the humanities and social sciences. There is more information about us here.


We are pleased to announce the launch of our eBook platform where we host all of our new and backlist books for sale to individual customers and libraries.

We have also been updating our site to add new functionality and depth.

  • integrated book and journal searching

  • book chapter purchase/downloading for selected titles

  • chapter level abstracts, dois, keywords and other metadata for all books


In our view, Plan S currently offers no suitable mechanism for the HSS community to transition their publications on a large scale to sustainable forms of open access. Read why here.
